To be called one of the best power ballads of all time it needs to be a song that moves you, a song that is empowering! Hence the term power ballad. It bothers me that wussy rock songs are being called the best power ballads of all time. So I am creating a list of TRULY POWERFUL rock songs. These are tracks that light a fire underneath all of us and force us to feel their power!
I present to you one of the best power ballads of all time:
Journey - Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)
There is no denying this power ballad. The music video for Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) is a theatrical masterpiece. Steve Perry knows that "Someday love will find you!" This is a true classic and fits the criteria as one of the best power ballads of all time. There will be no wussy rock on this list.
The next rock song to join our exclusive best power ballads of all time list:
Survivor - Eye of the Tiger
You simply cannot stop the energy that Survivor transfers through your body as you listen to this power ballad. No wonder Rocky was such a good fighter. Don't we all get the "Eye of the Tiger" from this song.
A different style, but still one of the best power ballads of all time:
Toto - Africa
This song is not as well known but there is something that you have to admit is quite powerful about this track. It is a power ballad in my opinion, although it hits you in a smoother way.
Redefining what is considered a power ballad probably will not happen. I felt that someone needed to stand up for the songs that deserved to be mentioned with the best power ballads of all time. These inspiring and powerful artists have a voice and it must be heard!
